Mela (Italian for "apple") is a romantic 1 bedroom apartment forming part of the conversion from the large stable adjoining our Masseria when it was being used as a working farm. The apartment features exposed stonework of the exterior wall of the original chapel.

Entering the apartment from the garden, you walk into the large main living area which features a comfortable sofa, armchairs and coffee tables next to the faux fireplace. This is a perfect spot for a quiet evening in enjoying a glass of local wine after a hectic day of sight-seeing / a lazy day by the beach!
There is a wall mounted TV with an integrated DVD player (we have a library of DVDs available for you to use).
The sofa quickly converts into a second double bed, the pillows and bedding can be stored in the large wardrobe during the day.
The kitchen area includes a 4 ring gas hob, electric oven, large fridge / freezer and fitted cupboards. Or, if you prefer, you can make use of one of the three communal BBQs in the garden.
The main living area also has an internal dining table and chairs if you would prefer to eat inside.
The bedroom is one of our favourite rooms in the entire complex with its exposed stonework hinting at some of the property's history. There is a double bed, storage space, bedside table and a full length mirror. Additional storage space is available in the double wardrobe in the alcove in the corridor.
The bedroom is equipped with a remote controlled air conditioning unit (providing either cool or warm air as required).
Next door to the bedroom is a beautifully tiled bathroom / wet-room featuring a walk-in shower, wash-hand basin, toilet, bidet and mirror. The bathroom has a (seasonally heated) towel rail.
The entire apartment also benefits from underfloor heating during the cooler months.
Outside there is a private terrace divided off with a bamboo hedge and traditional well on one side and potted plants on the other. A patio table and chairs provides the ideal spot for alfresco dining whilst enjoying the garden views over the top of the glorious bird of paradise plants with their distinctive and exotic orange flowers. The patio area is protected by a wooden portico with a sail cloth cover to provide shade from the Puglian sunshine.
Free Wifi access is available throughout the apartment and patio and also extends across the entire garden and pool area.
